Detectives have issued an e-fit image of a man they want to identify in connection with a report of a serious sexual assault.
The incident was reported to police in April last year.
On the night of 25 October 2017, the victim – a woman now in her 20s – got into a dark grey estate car in Leicester city centre.
She believed that the car was a taxi and asked to be dropped off in Manor Road, Oadby.
However when she tried to get out of the vehicle, she reported that she was sexually assaulted by the driver.
Following the incident the car – which was believed to have been similar to a Toyota Prius and was on either a 15 or 51 plate – drove off at speed.
Image of man police wish to identify
Detective Constable Jason Smalley, the investigating officer, said: “The victim in this incident has shown great courage in coming forward to report what happened.
“From speaking to her, we want to identify a man similar to the e-fit pictured. At the time the incident occurred, we believe he was in his late 30s or early 40s and is around 5ft 9ins tall.
“He had a tattoo – possibly a tribal design – on his left upper arm, between the shoulder and elbow.
“Do you recognise him? Do you know who this person is? Anything you’re able to tell us, no matter how insignificant you think it is, could help.”
